This is part of my series of walking around Vancouver to show you sights and sounds of our City. I am doing my best to walk, or hobble, as my foot is not working as it should
I have shown you scenes from this area before. We are in False Creek, site of our Olympic Athletes Village. That is the Science world dome on the right
That is BC Place in the background and during the summer you can watch various types of water craft go back and forth on this quiet waterway. Here we have two girls kayacking . . .
No, they have not come closer. I am using a Sigma Super Zoom HSM 18-250mm lens and I am nearly zoomed to 250mm and on a crop factor body like the Canon T2i this approximates 400mm so they are really quite far away from where I am viewing
There are also several Dragon Boat teams practising. This year during June 20-22, 2014 there is going to be our Dragon Boat Festival (read here)
As I am not in a physical condition to do much walking until my foot gets back to normal I was just sitting and doing some people watching, until I noticed the Dragon Boats lined up as if to race. I nearly missed the start
I didn't think I did much walking but I guess it was too much. I should have stayed home and put my leg up I read that I should raise my foot above heart level to help circulation. I could barely walk and all night I tossed and turned as my foot was hurting all night . . .
